About Karen

We recently purchased our second vacation rental. This is our fourth season of operation for our other property, the Little Wissota Cabin on the south shore of the same lake. We strive for attention to details which hopefully will assure you that what is advertised is what you will receive and that your time spent at our retreat will meet your expectations. Please see the many reviews regarding the "Peaceful Little Cabin for more information regarding our renters' satisfaction level with our services.

Clean and beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my sisters 40th birthday with several friends and family and this property was perfect for us! Everything you needed was there and the patio and decks were perfect for enjoying the beautiful lake views.

We did the float trip through Loopys and couldn't have asked for a better time. We would definitely consider staying at this property again.

Great place!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location for our family to gather! Comfortable beds, a clean and spacious house, and a well appointed kitchen. The house offers many different conversation areas to utilize inside, and different patios and decks to gather outside, all while enjoying the beauty

of the lake and shoreline with a fire pit as well! An added bonus is the nearby bakery, ice cream stand, and grocery store.
